I have been in such a funk lately. I have not felt like doing much of anything. Honestly, it has taken a lot for me to make the decision to write this post. But write it I should! Have you ever felt this way? Just apathetic about everything. Gotta get lesson plans done. Yep. Not yet. Gotta make dinner plans. Hmmm...delivery? Gotta clean out my car. Nope. Gotta do the mommy thing...sluggishly, I guess there isn’t a way out of that. This is me. Right now. What to do, what to do?
Even as I sit here thinking about all of those things that I could be doing, some that I really SHOULD be doing...right? I still decide to sit here, blanket wrapped around my shoulders, feeling helpless, waiting for November 3, 2020 to just fade away (if you are in America at this moment your anxiety is hardly held captive). If this were to happen to me everyday, everything would pile up. Some may say I am having a bout of depression. “She just needs time for herself...some serotonin or dopamine may do the trick…” but what if this is not every day, not my normal, not me?
I can already say that the first part of my problem is that I am TOO comfortable. I mean, if you were wrapped in a cozy blanket would you want to get up and move around? Bahahaha!!
As I write this, I shake my shoulders. Release the blanket. Now I have some momentum. Gotta move when you are feeling chilled!
What else? What else? Let’s see if I can motivate you by motivating myself here.
Hmmm...I can get my shoes on and take my kids for a walk. That may be the trick!
Here are some other ways that I can help myself with this funk, and hopefully provide some assistance to you!!
Have you been in a funk lately? What were some things you did to deflate it? How did you find that motivation?
